I am excited to announce that Wireshark has a new home. CACE Technologies, Wireshark's primary sponsor and my employer, has been acquired by Riverbed Technology (NASDAQ:RVBD). Riverbed is an exciting, fast-growing company that makes WAN optimization and IT performance management products. We started a serious conversation with them concerning acquisition during SHARKFEST this past June. Much of the conversation was about keeping Wireshark the way it is: strong, independent, and community-driven. The more we spoke with them the more we saw a perfect fit. Riverbed truly understands computer networking, and their very talented management team has such clear vision that we feel very comfortable betting our future on them. Their co-founder and CTO, Steve McCanne, is one of the pioneers of our field. He created BPF, libpcap and NS. Very little is going to change for Wireshark in this transition. I will stay onboard and keep running things in the same way you are all used to. The only difference will be the additional resources that a larger company will lend to the project. Wireshark would not be the world's leading network analyzer were it not for its talented and dedicated community of users and contributors. Everyone at CACE Technologies recognizes that, and we would like to thank each of you for having been with us on this journey. As we continue the journey as Riverbed employees we are still committed to working with and for you. I have no doubt that Wireshark will thrive for years to come. If you have questions please ask them on this list or on ask.wireshark.org and I'll answer as quickly as possible.
